1 Scope and object
This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows:
1.1.1 Equipment included in scope
Replace the existing text with the following:
This part of IEC 61010 specifies safety requirements for HAND-HELD and hand-manipulated
current sensors described below.
These current sensors are for measuring, detecting or injecting current, or indicating current
waveforms on circuits without physically opening the current path of the circuit being
measured. They may be stand-alone current sensors or accessories to other equipment or
parts of combined equipment (see Figure 101). These include measurement circuits which are
part of electrical test and measurement equipment, laboratory equipment, or process control
equipment. The existence of these current sensors and circuits in equipment requires
additional protective means between the current sensor, the circuit and an OPERATOR.
